View of St Mary’s Church in Great Wymondley, near Stevenage in Hertfordshire. The church was small and built in the 11th century from flint and stone. It has an apsidal chancel and is one of only three surviving Norman churches in Hertfordshire. The church windows were inserted at a later date and the tower was built in the 15th century and has a pyramidal roof. The roof of the nave was also replaced when the tower was built and features a number of stone corbels (a corbel is a support projecting from a wall), some of which are shaped like a lion, a nun and a king.
